Sanibel's Scenic Sunsets

I'm sure that everyone has a different idea of what makes a sunset beautiful.  For me, the most beautiful ones I've ever seen, have been right here on Sanibel Island.  The summer clouds help make them special to me.  To be honest, I'm starting to have a hard time deciding which is my favorite.  I love them all.

Do you remember where you saw the most beautiful sunset, and what made it special?

I think maybe I enjoy them more now, because I relax and take the time to appreciate them.  This evening we went to meet friends for dinner, and as we were driving home, decided to drive on out to the Sanibel Causeway to see what might be instore for us. 

It was magnificent and I want to share it with all of you. :)

The colors gradually changed from light to dark and then back again.

Those dark clouds brought cool wind,
to add the finishing touches to the sunset.

I don't recall one specific sunset as the most beautiful, but without a doubt many of the more memorable ones were at Sanibel. I don't know if it is because they were that spectacular or because of the memories associated with them and being on Sanibel.

When I see your pictures, along with many of my own, they remind me of all the good times Debbie and I have had on Sanibel over the last 12 years. Thank you.

I don't know if you have been to my blog lately, but we are in a time of transition in our lives and unsure of the future and what it may hold. If I never make it back to Sanibel, your post help me get my fix. Please continue with your blog and your pictures.

I've had a few bad-memorable sunsets in the company of poor old Dr. Cranky, but I've enjoyed the sunsets on Sanibel as much as any in my life.

Hi Tootie! We have beautiful sunsets here over the bay of Green Bay, WI...but I will say that some of the most spectacular ones I have ever seen were in FL and off the coast of Sanibel is right up there with my top picks! Diana
